A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick

Set in 1909 Wisconsin, businessman Ralph Truitt wants for a train bringing him his new wife, but she is not who he thought she was.

I don’t know what to say about this. It was different than I expected. It was dark, yet hopeful. By the end I felt sympathy for Catherine. The ending surprised me. I think this is what a friend of mine would call Big L Literature.
The  obsession part threw me off a bit, and I’m not sure if I can recommend it to some of the ladies who come to the library, but I am glad I’ve read it since it seems to be generating lots of buzz.
NPR has an interesting interview with the author. Check it out.
